WWE RAW Opener:
RAW opened up with Triple H shown in the back and Shane McMahon approaches him. Shane said he came for a chat, and knows the sledgehammer thing was an accident, and that they are cool. His dad on the other hand…Shane says that it’s embarrassing to see his father do that, and it’s mortifying when you’re actually a member. Shane said his dad likes him, and he’s like a member of the family, and he should go reason with him, because if he doesn’t, it’s only going to get worse.
In the arena:
Jonathan Coachman is in the ring with Paul Heyman, and Coach went to introduce Rob Van Dam, but Heyman took over with the introduction. RVD and Heyman embraced as Coachman introduced the WWE Champion John Cena. RVD took a seat at the table looking eager to sign as Coachman said he holds the Money in the Bank contract in his hand that Rob Van Dam won at WrestleMania, and both lawyers have approved it. Coachman said RVD will sign first and RVD took a mic. Van Dam said six days, six days before that title is around his waist. The crowd mostly booed as RVD said he will rename it the ECW World Title. RVD said that he hopes Cena is prepared, for this hardcore action that brings out the best in him, and for this extremely judgmental crowd that can’t wait to boo him right out the freakin’ door. RVD said the Chain Gang will not be present at One Night Stand. Heyman said when Cena signs the contract he’s walking into the most unique environment in sports entertainment history, it will be about the most rabid fanbase in history, and they will all be in unison dying for the chance to rub three letters in his face, ECW.
RVD signed the contract as Cena grabbed a mic. Cena laughed and said that he is looking at an ECW fan in himself. He said he watched and respected everything that ECW did for the business, and just because he has to go to his house and play by his rules, and have the fans boo him out of the Ballroom, don’t think he’s just going to lay down and hand him the WWE Title. He said everyone knows that RVD will fight for ECW, but he needs to understand that Cena has fought and bled to keep the WWE Title. He said he’s stepped in a cage with pitbulls and fears nothing and regrets less. He said he knows what it’s like to be booed out of the building, and he’s stared it in the face and smiled. Before Rob gets excited about being the hero at One Night Stand, he needs to realise that this could be the one opportunity to get a crack at this soldier, and this soldier is locked on, dailed in and ready to strike, and at One Night Stand, his target is Rob Van Dam.
Cena and RVD shook hands and then Heyman said there is a mistake here, because his first taste of ECW doesn’t come Sunday, it comes two nights from now on the USA Network, this Wednesday night on a special called WWE vs. ECW, ten superstars from RAW and Smackdown combined against ten ECW superstars in a battle royal, and just so John can sample the flavour, he brought a couple of participants with him tonight! ECW music hit as Balls Mahoney, Sandman, Dreamer and Funk came through the crowd! Cena guessed that they are here for his autograph, and if he’s going down, he going down swinging. Cena nailed Mahoney but then Sandman went nuts on him with the Kendo Stick. Sabu then hit the ring and went to the top rope with his chair and sailed off onto Cena on the table right in the back of Cena’s head. Big Show then hit the ring with the RAW locker room as ECW backed off into the crowd. Cena is busted open as the ECW alumni converged in the crowd staring down the RAW superstars.
Non Title Match

Triple H said that for one second he’s going to go to the ring and embarrass himself, then he can stick it up his assial. McMahon said Triple H isn’t the kind of leader he thought he was, and if he goes out there and kisses his ass tonight, then everyone will line up to do it. Triple H said it ain’t going to happen, and he’s going to have to come up with another plan. McMahon said he’s got it. There’s a match tonight, Triple H goes one on one with a 500 pound giant in the Big Show, and if Triple H wins then he calls off the Ass Club tonight. Triple H said he’s on. McMahon said that match is now, as in right now. Triple H’s music hit and he left.

McMahon is on the phone and Triple H barges in. McMahon asks what the hell he’s talking about, he’s been on the phone and has more important things to do. McMahon then realises that Triple H lost, because if he lost, then he has no alternative than to kiss his ass. McMahon said a deal is a deal, and if he’s thinking about not kissing his ass, then he’ll never wrestle for a championship again. Triple H looks ultra pissed as McMahon left.
Referee: Michael Chioda

Kurt Angle’s music hit in the arena, and ECW’s newest superstar made his way to the ring! Angle got on the mic as the fans chanted for “Angle” in his hometown of Pittsburgh. He said he’s proudly a part of ECW and not RAW, but nothing was going to stop him from coming back to his hometown tonight. Mick Foley’s music then hit as he made his way to the stage. Foley said to wait a second, it’s one thing to stand out there as a proud member of ECW, but getting a cheap pop is his deal. He said ECW is a bunch of second rate Mick Foley rip-offs…Angle said how about losing every bit of his wrestling ability and becoming a stuntman, everything Flair said about Foley is true. Woooo! Foley said that Angle has issued an open challenge at One Night Stand, and since it came from Heyman’s mouth, he assumed it was a lie. Angle said it’s true, and he knows he has his tag match with Dreamer and Funk, but since Foley’s baby boy is now Mrs. Foley’s giant hairy prostitute, why not take the open challenge. Lita then came out, and speaking of hairy prostitutes, how you doing there? Foley said he’s been informed that they have a special visitor for Angle, someone who has more wins over Angle than anyone, the Rated R Superstar, Edge! Edge came out holding the Hardcore Title and took a mic. Edge asked how Angle was, and that he looks a little nervous. Edge played up that he was the one who shaved Angle bald. Edge said that against him, Angle is like the Pittsburgh Pirates, not the Steelers, like Willy Stargel, not the 1970’s all-star, more like the corpse that has been rotting for the last five years. Angle said he has two seconds to explain why he’s out here, you blonde haired bitch. Edge said he thought he’d tell all the people that they will never see Angle again, because when he became the first ECW draft pick, his career ended. Edge said Angle will not fit in, the first time he saw ECW he walked away in disgust. Edge said he thinks Angle will trade places with him in a second. Edge said he’s the number one contender to the WWE Title, he’s got a shot at the title at Vengeance, and Angle has his open challenge at One Night Stand. Edge said that Angle has gone from the penthouse to the outhouse, and if he thinks he will last more than two weeks in ECW, he’s full of crap! Angle said growing up in Pittsburgh, he’s been told his whole life that he couldn’t do anything, but he proved them wrong. Angle said he will change the face of ECW forever at One Night Stand. Angle asked if he knows anyone in ECW capable of doing this…Angle took down Edge and then Foley was given the Angle Slam. Edge went for a DDT on Angle, but Angle locked in the Ankle Lock! Edge screamed in pain and bailed to the outside as Edge, Foley and Lita made their way up the aisle. Randy Orton then hit the ring out of nowhere and laid out Angle with the RKO! What the hell!
During The Break:
Todd Grisham caught up with Orton in the back, and he didn’t forget that Angle broke his ankle back in April, and he finally got his payback. Orton said he accepts Angle’s challenge this Sunday for One Night Stand.
